Wish You Were Here

Mayberry vacation, day three, so far I have:

-Spent time with The Girls, catching up and scheming for the future.

-Spent two glorious mornings on the back patio with my parents, drinking coffee and reading the morning newspaper.

-Slept in past six a.m.

-Blown my carefully crafted diet well out of the water.

-Stayed up way past my bedtime and not regretted it for a minute.

-Enjoyed a couple of hours at the lake, watching the boys fish while catching up with Reese and one of her classmates from high school.


So far, The Man-Cub has:

-Caught a fish (on his first cast!) at that local lake where, incidentally, I spent a good part of my teenage years (decidedly not fishing).

-Stayed up well past his bedtime, playing Xbox and snacking in a room where eating food was once forbidden, especially food in the hands of children.

-Spent some time catching up with Reese's son, whom he gets to see once a year, if he is lucky.

-Slept past noon.

-Enjoyed the spoilage that only the Pod People can provide, including dining on every special treat his grandmother could make for him and ordering her around like a short-order cook.

It's been a pretty productive two days and today should prove equally busy. The Teenager and Not-the-Boyfriend arrive later this morning and I am certain to have an update on their activities in a couple of days.

The only negative thing I can possibly identify about the vacation thus far is that it is going by entirely too quickly.

After all, there truly is no place like home.
